Saint Severinus of SeptempedaArticle

(Saint) Bishop (June 8) (6th century) An Italian Saint, Bishop of Septempeda (San Severino) near Ancona. He was a wealthy man, and had given all his goods to the poor, and retired into a monastery when Pope Vigilius (A.D. 540) forced him to accept a Bishopric. He governed his flock faithfully in terrible times of devastating war, dying about A.D. 550, shortly before the destruction of Septempeda by the Gothic King Totila.
